New York (UN) - A photography exhibition highlighting the contribution of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR) in world's humanitarian action under the UN peacekeeping missions was inaugurated on Tuesday at the UN headquarters in New York.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson, Dmitry Titov, Assistant Secretary-General for Rule of Law and Security Institutions (Department of Peacekeeping Operations), UN Deputy Humanitarian Chief Kyung-wha Kang, and Adama Dieng, United Nations Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, as well as ambassadors accredited to the UN.
The event is organized by the Moroccan representation under the theme "Morocco's international humanitarian action", and mirrors, according to Eliasson, Morocco's commitment to humanitarian action for decades.
